So I got a job as head of subject at a school after I got a job starting September as a usual teacher role. They said I could apply for the internal head of subject post and I got it. I have been told that the person who thought the job was in the bag for them. Has pretty much been said they are not going to respect me. They have offered me support as such as in they are aware of this and comments the person has made. Any advice to managing such situations? I don’t want to have any animosity and I totally understand how he feels but they blanked me the twice I have been in and I can see it being a huge issue. I just want to hell improve the department but I don’t think they will see it this way.
